Yorgos Lanthimos' surreal sci-fi tinged drama, Poor Things, which stars The Amazing Spider-Man actress Emma Stone as a take on Frankenstein's Monster (sort of), arrives in theaters this weekend, and Searchlight has now shared a new clip from the movie online.

In this brief sneak peek, Bella Baxter informs one of her suitors, Max McCandless (Ramy Youssef), that her former lover Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo) was not best pleased when he discovered that she was working as a lady of the night for a time.

Max confesses that he is jealous of the men that got to sleep with Bella, but notes that her body is her own to give freely if she chooses.

Bella responds that she usually charges 30 francs.

Stone spoke about her role during an interview with Vanity Fair, revealing that Bella is "my very favorite character I've ever gotten to play."

“I had a lot of extra hair sewn into the back of my head. It was super heavy but really worth it. More than anything, it’s my very favorite character I’ve ever gotten to play. The character I play in this movie is Bella, and I am completely in love with her. She’s not like anybody else. She doesn’t have a history, so she’s building herself as she goes. She’s so interested in the world, and she’s full of life and passion and curiosity. It was just incredible to play somebody who has that kind of joy and that sense of adventure in them and basically her whole entire lifetime. Her growth was a huge gift.”

Here's what Lanthimos had to say about the film's sex/nudity and Stone's commitment to filming the scenes in a recent interview.

“It’s a shame that Emma could not be here to speak more about it, because it will be coming all from me,” he said. “First of all, sex is an intrinsic part of the novel itself, her freedom about everything including sexuality. Secondly, it was very important for me to not make a film that would be prudish, because that would be like completely betraying the main character."

“We had to be confident Emma had to have no shame about her body, nudity, engaging in those scenes and she understood that right away,” he added.

While Poor Things does have some detractors, the majority of the reviews have been positive, and the film currently sits at a very impressive 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Check out the clip at the link below.

"From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation."

The movie has been rated R for “Strong and pervasive sexual content, graphic nudity, disturbing material, gore, and language."

Poor Things is set to hit theaters on December 8.

@garu - This has made the kid in me very happy from Remake's annoucement.

@The1st - I never played the OG FF7, but FF7R is my favorite franchise and game of all time since I played it when it released, I'm so excited.

This website's horniness is going to drive this movie all the way to #1.

@ClintThaHamster - remember when Josh used to post those completely distasteful articles of scantily clad actresses ?

Then he just stopped. Guess enough people complained?
ClintThaHamster - 12/8/2023, 12:37 PM
@Vigor - I don't, though I wish I did. I LOVE distasteful articles of scantily clad actresses!

This looks like it will disgust me & make me unhappy.

Though I love Emma Stone, I won't even consider this.

Did anyone else read that headline in Frank Reynolds’ voice, or is it just me? “HOORING”.

Why couldn't she have done this 10 years ago?
SpiderParker - 12/8/2023, 10:42 AM
@DarthAlgar - Cause then that could have sent her into obscurity.

I love all of Yorgos' movies, this looks like another win!

@WEAPONXOXOXO - No. I like it here, with you.
MisterDoctor217 - 12/8/2023, 11:10 AM
lol since when is everyone here so prudish ?
Apophis71 - 12/8/2023, 1:31 PM
@MisterDoctor217 - An anomaly which seems to occur with incremental degrees depending how far past a percieved 'prime' or the actor percieved too far divergant from their own politics (with a +/- factor on top due to brand associations).

Don't ask me how anyone would class someone who is 35 is 'past prime', let alone any other aspect of all that with pro/anti-sexualisation/objectification stances.

Another artiicle, another day and another actor and all prudisness slips away and in the main the talk devolves into guttural levels of perviness again
ObserverIO - 12/9/2023, 6:05 AM
@Apophis71 - Hetero sex causes population problems.

The age that we are allowed to sexualise people will fall. And rise. Eventually only 30 year olds will be allowed to have sex with each other.
If you find 29 year olds attractive you will be legally classed as a pedophile. If you find 31 year olds attractive, society will be disgusted at you. They wil retch so much it will put you off your dinner.

Cant wait to secretly fap in theaters. Hopefully nobody catches me. 😂🤣

@BeNice123 - nobody is going to the theaters anymore so. Fap on good sir
MG0019 - 12/8/2023, 11:22 AM
Mark Cassidy. It’s cheap of you to use an image of Emma Stone orgasiming, juxtaposed with Gwen Stacy for your article’s thumbnail. You know d*mn well what you’re doing. Were this a real article, of real journalism; the topic of whoring should be focused on you.
WhatIfRickJames - 12/8/2023, 11:39 AM
@MG0019 - lol, harsh
AnthonyVonGeek - 12/8/2023, 11:28 AM
Being a “whore” is so popular today that even comic book movie sites write stories about it.
Last lady I dated said I was lucky cause I met her during her “whore phase” she was fun but definitely not girlfriend or wife material. 🤷‍♂️🤣
Apophis71 - 12/8/2023, 1:41 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - Fun fact, if you believe the research that is...

Studies found those of a right wing political persuasion tend to have fantasies revolving around infidelity which can include prostitution or watching your partner have sex with someone else.

This isn't to say they practice these fantasies, indeed having a fantasy in opposition to a moral code can result in raging/campaigning against said thing.

Those identifying with left wing politics tended to fantasise about bondage and BDSM, again does not mean they try out said fantasies and can publicly appear apposed to something they have a secret fantasy regarding.

I guess moderate maybe consider cheating on their partner/employing the services of a dominatrix.
DarthAlgar - 12/8/2023, 3:16 PM
@Apophis71 - I can actually 100% believe this.
DocSpock - 12/8/2023, 11:39 AM

Okayyy. I'd still bone her.

But I won't watch this poo.
